The news out of Iran has slowed, but the chanting on the rooftops goes on, as strong as ever.

Also, some of these women are freakin’ amazing. (Read the whole story. It’s worth it.)

The brown-haired guy who’s not Steve Doocey thinks Americans should stop marrying other species. I’m so glad TCR is back on-air tonight.

Simple fifteen-minute writing exercise does wonders for black students’ achievement. With effects that last years. This sounds way too good to be true, but there’s the study…

Double standards in sexy photography – a pose that we find hot when it’s a woman is considered silly when a man tries it. Which sucks, because I would love to see more scantily clad men in feminine poses.

Thursday Next/Lord of the Rings crossover. This fic contains everything that is wonderful about the Thursday Next books. READ IT.

Google Earth has street-level visuals of the buildings used as models for Yomiko’s home. The R.O.D animators are seriously dedicated.

Rachel Maddow is the Doctor. This makes a surprising amount of sense.

And Crispin Freeman (Alucard’s voice actor) likes the Hellsingpuffs. *basks*

On cloud nine yet over Crispin’s puff’s :P? And the Fox News link video reminded me of one of comedian Greg Proops’ stand up acts about the same thing. Guess The Brown-Haired Guy doesn’t favor sharing the gene pool; makes you wonder which pool he goes to (in particular opinion, not harshly judgmental)

That writing activity is very similar to what I do with kids and the comic project after school. I should work on trying to quantify its impact, since this suggests I’ll find one!

On the ‘poses’ issue–some of the men just don’t seem to be able to get the poses right in the first place. They’re either too tense or trying too hard, to the point that they look stiff or deliberately ridiculous. Those who DO get it right, however, seem to capture the image. For me, at least. :P
